Maintenance Order: Changing the Header Notification in the Object List

You use the object list to assign technical objects (equipment, functional locations), assemblies, plant maintenance notifications, or objects that are identified by a combination of material and serial number to a maintenance order. You can create and assign the header notification in the General Order Data. In the object list, the header notification is identified by the checkbox Header Notification. Until now, this could not be changed. You can use this feature to mark, in the object list, a notification that has been assigned to the order as a header notification or change a header notification that already exists. If you choose a header notification in the object list and select the checkbox, this notification is copied as header notification to the header data of the order and the system deletes every assignment that may have previously existed.

Effects on Existing Data

On the tab page Object List, the checkbox in the table column Header Notification is ready for input for all notifications assigned to the order. If you select the checkbox for a notification, this notification becomes the header notification. If a different notification was defined as the header notification beforehand, the system deselects the checkbox for the former header notification and changes the header notification on the tab page General Data of the maintenance order.
